and who is eligible for a refund. our guest is tax foundation chief economist william mcbride. "washington journal" is next. host: >> host: the white house is to eating -- is disputing claims. the u.s. ambassador to madrid will appear to discuss buying in the country after press reports that the nsa collected information on phone calls. chiefs from those and other countries are expected to travel to the u.s. to discuss those issues. this topic, even on the sunday talk shows yesterday. for our first 45 minutes, when it comes to physically monitoring by the nsa on our allies, we want to get your thoughts on whether the u.s. should rethink spying on allies. here's how you can tell us this morning. you can also reach out to us on social media. you can always send us an e-mail to journal at c-span.org. stores today and yesterday stemming on new developments when it comes to monitoring of ally activity by the nsa. new about obama spying. thatsa denies reports obama was told in 2010 of nsa spying on angela merkel and allowed it to continue. on sunday, the german tabloid siding unknow
for by the payroll tax. that's called -- a kind of single payer. but the republicans for years have been saying -- no we don't want it that way. we want private insurers. we want a profit motive the we want a market. and indeed if you look back, historically, richard mixston came up with a proposal that was very, very close to the affordable care act. democrats didn't like it. it wasn't close enough to social security and medicare. mitt romney, the reason the president is -- in massachusetts is because obama care was modeled exactly after romney care in massachusetts. including the individual man date, which mitt romney after he signed that into law and was asked where did the mandate come from. he said an idea from the heritage foundation. and i heard from it through newt gingrich. that's where -- that's where this comes, this comes from. so for republicans now to turn around and say, oh, we think this is just awful. we don't like any of this. well it its beyond ironic. it is sort of -- tragic and combic com comic. >> secretary sebelius -- >> the president made it clear. and our policy was put
of obamacare under congress' general taxing power. the court noted specifically that, quote, even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. mr. speaker, i want to read that one more time. even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. in short, mr. speaker, obamacare was upheld as a tax. the supreme court did not and has not yet considered a challenge to the affordable care act's taxing provisions on the grounds that it violated the origination clause in the united states constitution. and, mr. speaker, it most certainly did exactly that. mr. speaker, the origination clause is found in article 1, section 7 of the constitution. and it states, quote, all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the house of representatives, unquote. in creating obamacare, senator harry reid took an entirely unrelated bill, h.r. 3590, containing just 714 words, a
with grossly incompetent. that's what works for me. i built a career on it. >> now they're tacking and taxing. why getting behind the wheel could put you behind the eight ball. >>> after fbn reported it, the mileage tax, get ready for other states to follow suit. >> can you imagine the people of oregon going along with putting a gps in the car so the government can -- >> we were wondering how do they know how far you're driving? >> more states are looking into this as a way to raise revenue, putting black boxes in people's car to tax them by the mile. the devices can either track where you are and that has a lot of privacy experts worried. but should they? attorney says no, they should not. but michelle says, well you know what? this is the government going berserk. michelle, ye of little faith. >> of course i'm berserk over this. why do you have to know where i'm going? >> i'm not. it's the government. >> it's this little information, this is why we need this information-but it gross into something else, and this kind of information winds up becoming too valuable to other agencies. so, while
tax rates. great infrastructure. we have done all the things we think we can do to help this be a great productive work environment, but there are certain things that are out of control that dramatically impact jobs in tennessee. when i hear manufacturers tell us, we love being in tennessee and we love the work environment, but if we had this agreement in place, we could produce x more jobs. it is frustrating to me as a governor because it is something that is out of my control, but it is critical for me to lend that voice, whether it is in washington or anywhere else, to raise it. we have worked hard to set up a great working environment in tennessee. we think we have it. there are certain things that are beyond our control. >> so i understand everyone on this panel is an enthusiast to these agreements, but we want to be clearheaded about some of the competitive costs. in the construction-mining business, what you see as the competitiveness that would come from -- imports would be less expensive? what are the challenges you will face of some of these deals come to be? >
for income tax purposes, the court would disregard it because this is s-corporation? >> it may well be. the fact it is an s-corporation even though it means there is this corporate forum, the net result of income and loss of penalty goes on frank and phil gilardi's income tax returns, part of schedule k. >> a complete pass through? >> yes. >> that is true of limited liabilitied corporations and associations? >> i think we deal with a you blah that impinges on fundamental first amendment freedoms the supreme court said we don't allow form to triumph over substance that. is what we're talking here. >> i think what lee says, if you're in the commercial, if you're in the commercial market you have to give up some for the greater good. >> i agree judge, it does say that but what we say that is part of the -- >> congress had some exemptions as well. >> nothing like in -- >> that is your take. you're saying the exemptions here are so overwhelming, so large in their number that you should win, i don't see you can't possibly get around lee. because lee had exemptions and the court gave it the b
plan comes out, for example, if your insurance is do gotoo good, you have to pay a tax, i had people come up and say i have to dpay tax on my insurance because it is too good for obama care. >> now, others have joined in. they introduced the, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan act. is that going to go anywhere? >> well, i support it. what it is doing, with these crazy rules saying if your insurance is good, you can keep it. they slid this one word in, saying if your insurance changes from the time obama care is passed, you lose your insurance. they slipped it in because they want you to be on one of four government choices. there used to be hundreds and hundreds of insurance choices in our country, there will now be four. even if they tell you there are 20 different insurance exchanges in one plan, there are still only four choices. they're only allowed to sell four choices. this is really the taking of your freedom. when ken churuccinelli talks ab it, he says this is a choice. >> i think they figured out there were 19 million fewer people that could be in the exchanges. a
to cover in the next hour. upcoming guests, scott wiener, san francisco's supervisor. tax on sugary drinks. >> also, the union for bart have ordered to have a new contract. we will hear from him live in studio coming up within the hour. >> first, breaking news in oakland. a two alarm house fire spreading fast. it broke out this morning around 6:20. right now there's no word of anyone hurt. we have calls to fire officials and will bring you the latest when it comes to the newsroom. >> a federal prosecutor providing new details about the shooting inside lax. the suspected gunman allegedly shot a tsa officer at point blank range on friday, then went up an escalator, came back down, and shot the same man again. he's been charged with murdering a federal officer and could face the death penalty. investigators say he was not a ticketed passenger. he was dropped off at the airport before the shooting. as carter evans tells us, authorities say he had more than one weapon. >> reporter: federal authorities announced the man who opened fire on tsa officers at delhi international airport carried with
? similar tax measures were defeated last year in richmond and almonte. >> it's a national trend that appears to be growing. we spoke with the san francisco supervisor scott wiener who discussed the possibility of a surcharge on sodas. it's his idea. the supervisor said that drinking them is a health risk. >> there is growing specific evidence that south air drinks are a leading cause of a spike in type 2 diabetes and that has to do with the way they absorbed into the bodies. they a direct cause. >> and for most americans, it might seem odd these days for sugar to join the list of big bad things like liquor or tobacco, the sip tax of the past -- syntax of the past. how do you think this is going to go over? >> they're a major, major health problem like tobacco. >> it's similar to that. the judged -- let me ask you this: what is the idea? is it to get money for programs for health and education for kids about not drinking south air drippings or to make it more expensive and prohibit it for people to buy it and they buy less of it. >> we're not prohibiting anything. it's like a tob
on the house position in terms of the resolution they passed back in the spring which had no tax increases, no revenue increases, assumed to the repeal of the affordable care act. it is the antithesis to the senate position. thesenate budge was resolution they passed. they had increased references -- revenues and a differences are so great it is unlikely there will be any kind of agreement to raise revenues because it could not pass in the house of representatives. host: does that doom this effort to failure? guest: now, if people had expectations that this would be a large deficit reduction package achieved by the hope for a deadline of december 13, i think that is off the table. i think there is a real possibility, not of a grand bargain, but of a bargain that will be granted that we got a bargain at all. the american public believes that congress is dysfunctional and cannot achieve anything. at a minimum, it seems there is a good possibility that both mrs. murray and mr. ryan can come together on some sort of package that will show that the house and senate can work together in a minima
-do tax code, reform entitlement spending and reset spending levels. so the question is will this happen? can this happen? >> i think what we will see is resetting the spending levels. only for the next year. they only have two months and 13 days between now and the january 15th deadline. that's when the current spending plan expires. that's not a lot of time to put together something as comprehensive as this grand bargain. it would involve the tax code and entitlement spending and things that a are so huge and gaps that are so wide between the two parties, there is just not enough time to get that done. so where does that leave congress and the budget deal? it is going to be a focus on the current spending level and how we move into fiscal 2014. we have this temporary spending bill, but they need to come up with a deal that will last through 2014 and that will deal with remember the sequester that is the automatic budget cuts that come down every year. it is $110 billion automatically on january 15th. they want to stop that a from happening on the democratic side. on the republican side
republican after republican talking about cutting taxes, talking about growing the economy, but neachg t of he lks, tiddl ass the workg m awoma i's le e rublian pty s fogott theiddlclas exis. >> wel i ctain agr wi yo lo in trmsf making that contact with working families. and the biggest challenge families face in virginia is economic opportunity. it's jobs. there are enormous s.w.a.t.s wa because people have been unemployed so long. there's a big difference between me and terry mcauliffe. i can explain my plan to grow jobs and cut taxes, and he's proposing more government spending. $1,700 more in taxes per family versus my$700 tax cut. but a lot of them zero in now this month on obama care. and there's a stark difference between me and terry mcauliffe there also. and once again, his approach is bigger government, and mine is smaller government. i was the first to fight obama fight it. you were the first one to sue on obama care. >> right. >> at the same time, is that an issue for virginia voters? i mean, you know, we look at these numbers, and we're talking about, you know, roughly 10% o
. that's number one. number two, we need tax reform, in my view, tax reform that brings down the top corporate rates to something more closely aligned with every other developed nation in the world, and at the same time that we're doing that to generate some revenues for deficit reduction, to match what we're doing on the spending side. if you think about it, as the senator from ohio knows, the senator from west virginia knows, tax expenditures, tax breaks, tax credits, tax deductions, tax loopholes, tax gap adds up over the next ten years to anywhere from $10 trillion to $15 trillion. we're going to spend more money out of the treasury for tax expenditures than we're going to spend in all our appropriations bills combined. if we could capture 5% of $12 trillion over ten years for deficit reduction, that's $600 billion. if we could match that in like a bowles-simpson number, we could do about another $2 billion on deficit reduction on top of what we've already done. is that a grand compromise that i want and i think the senator from ohio wants and i know the senator from west virgini
to pass the immigration bill, reform the tax code, and replace across-the-board spending cuts none of sequestration. introduced by commerce secretary this is a half-hour. >> the first-ever select u.s.a. senate meeting. as you may have heard, we are sold out with 1200 attendees. business leaders from 58 countries and across the united states are here today. a warm welcome to all of you from all of us in the obama administration. let me be clear -- [applause] let me be clear, this summit is about you. it is all about business. it is all about connecting investors with communities. let me start with the story. when the select usa program was just starting out, an austrian company that makes auto parts was considering investing more in the united states. we went into action. the commerce department's vienna staff counsel the company on how to successfully established a new plan in the united states. the u.s. ambassador in austria met with the company's leaders. we connected a company with the state-level leaders that they wanted to me to. as a result, over the past year, the company ha
year's crisis in washington? what they did was, they raised taxes, and they cut spending through the sequester. and that's had a fairly predictable result. it's been good for the deficit. take a look at this chart, and you'll see the deficit as a percent of gdp has gone down dramatically since 2009 when it was 9.2%. 2013, just 4.1%. 79% of the decrease the government says it due to tax receipts. record tax receipts in 2013, up $325 billion from 2012. that's up 13%. so the tax man is getting his cut of this improving economy and also as a result of those tax increases. that has led to this lowering of the u.s. deficit. that's something the obama administration says is a good thing. they feel like, you know, it's not getting enough attention here in all of this hullabaloo here in washington. >> a quick follow-up question if i might that kayla tausche raised. and that is all of the money that the federal government has collected in settlements, fines and so forth with, for example, financial services company -- companies in the hundreds of billions of dollars over the past four or f
for that one-half to get benefits and pays no taxes. why would you vote for a party that cuts taxes you don't pay? >> obama's job approval has dropped and now 44.5%, hitting a low of 41% at the height of the shutdown. what does that slippage tell you? does it tell you the g.o.p. or obama has escaped the shutdown? what it tells you, if i may say so, is they don't think he is an outstanding leader. i'm not saying he's a terrible leader, but he's not a real leader. what they do know. >> is it psychoanalysis time? >> it is far better than anybody else in the country. 44 is not bad. >> and every program he puts out, the republicans say no. immigration reform is the next one out there and the republicans say no? that's a political gift to democrats and the president. >> republicans are to blame. issue three, u.s. tax offense tango. >> we believe if pakistan is secure and peaceful and prosperous, that is not only good for pakistan, it's good for the region and it's good for the world. we work to discuss the accommodations by the corporation. broad based stable partnership founded on the prin
stream more than anything else. it really have a tax to make sure that we are still getting something out of you even if you try to say i'm healthy, i'm fine, i'm opting out of it if you start to see those little chinks in the armor, that can cause this not to be successful in the long run. let me mention a pinch in the other part of it. people are going to get subsidies and tax breaks. that's another pinch on the system. i hear republicans talking all the time about the computer and how bad the computer is i'm willing to assume it's going to be up and working on november 30th. i have a longer look at this how are we going to finance it. waivers, exemptions, subsidies and young people who aren't going to do. this i'm curious really where the money comes from. >> that's where harry reid is already talking about tax increases because you know we have to go back to the table, come the 15th of january, and then also the 7th of february, dealing with funding the forecast with the cr and then also with the debt ceiling. and you hear harry reid saying that everyone in the united states of americ
be asked to pay a little bit more in taxes. maybe we might want to end all of the corporate loopholes that currently exist. again, that's not bernie sanders. january 29, 2013, poll by hart research associates. 66% of the american people believe the wealthiest 2% should pay more in taxes, and 64% of the american people believe that large corporations should pay more in taxes than they do today. well, guess what? the american people have given us a solution to the major crises facing the american people. they will want to invest in our economy, they will want to create jobs, they want to ask the wealthy and large corporations to pay more in taxes. they do not want to cut social security, medicare and medicaid. that's the real world. then you come back to washington. what are people saying? let's cut social security, medicare and medicaid, let's not invest in our infrastructure and create jobs, and in fact let's give more tax breaks to the wealthy and large corporations. so this is an alice in wonderland world. the american people are saying one thing and the lobbyists around here and ma
and says it's worth $40 a share. there's the alibaba ownership. that's after tax affecting it i think. and you get to $40 -- $6 a share for the core business. we shall see. but i will tell you this, alibaba growing as quickly as it is will be fascinating to see when it does come public. that will be a first half ipo. again, the filing still expected in the first quarter. you actually get the offering then, unclear, but let's assume it's the first half of the year. another key that yahoo! shareholders need to be up on, can they figure a tax efficient way for what it doesn't sell, may sell as little as 9% and therefore have a good remainder of alibaba, which is shocking, $190 billion. >> it's killing it. >> killing it. ebidta growing. it puts twitter to shame. >> as for the bernstein call, what if the core value does improve? >> here's the issue for me. wrooef se we've seen these over and over again, internet companies and people go crazy. i don't know what to pay for alibaba. i don't. if it's real, and it sounds real -- >> it's real. this company is generating enormous operating profit
the government does not that. skeptical of that, a doctor, obstetrician and taxes, stopped practicing a job. now a congressman. doctor, you wrote an op-ed were you said america was supposed to be different from europe. what is your point? >> honestly, the whole premise of the founding of our society was that it was a free society based upon limited government with government with the consent of the government. we broke away from a country where the divine right of kings was the popular philosophy. you owed to the king the tide and tax because after all, he was anointed by god. john: a majority at the time voted for it. >> it passed and as the president is apt to tell you very quickly, it passed through the supreme court with some changes. you know, is still be, a part of the united states congress to change something that is bad. chase something that people don't want. and really, the next up in this trauma, if you will, is up to the american people. i have done what i can't the last three years to either try to deflect or improve are not damaged people so badly with this thing. honestly, do you
republican after republican talking about cutting taxes, talking about growing the economy, but not reaching two of the folks, the middle class, the working man and woman, it's like the republican party has forgotten the middle class exists. >> well, i certainly agree with you, lou, in terms of making that contact with working families. and the biggest challenge families face in virginia is economic opportunity. it's jobs. there are enormous s.w.a.t.s wa because people have been unemployed so long. there's a big difference between me and terry mcauliffe. i can explain my plan to grow jobs and cut taxes, and he's proposing more government spending. $1,700 more in taxes per family versus my $700 tax cut. but a lot of them zero in now this month on obama care. and there's a stark difference between me and terry mcauliffe there also. and once again, his approach is bigger government, and mine is smaller government. i was the first to fight obama care, and he wants to expand it. >> you were the first one to fight it. you were the first one to sue on obama care. >> right. >> at the same time, is t
of this and navigate it. thank you. bill: your income tax, sales tax, how about a driving tax. why some states are now looking to charge people for every mile they drive and how the world with a plan to track that? martha: the old saying lice may never strikes twice turned out to be a myth for this man. we will tell you about his very close call. hi. i'm henry winkler. and i know there are many myths out there about a reverse mortgage, so i want you to know the facts. there are currently no credit score or income requirements to qualify. you can get tax-free money from the equity in your home. you can use the money to pay off your current mortgage if you have one. the remaining money can be used for anything. there's no monthly mortgage payments. and you still own your home! call today to get your free guide and dvd. it explains how a government-insured reverse mortgage works. there's no obligation. one reverse mortgage is a quicken loans company. their licensed experts can answer all your questions. call to find out what a great solution this can be. don't wait, call now! bill: so this man takes his
too much. about two-thirds said raising taxes to cut the deficit was a nonstarter. and compared to obamacare, which more voters actually said they wanted to repeal, these levels of support are striking. so if our friends on the other side want to keep trying to claim an electoral mandate for maintaining obamacare contradicted by the facts as that phaoeurbgs while using their own logic we had to call the mandate for reducing the size of government a super mandate. that's why their new plan to undo the cuts the president campaigned on and increase the debt is so outrageous. we hear that the senior senator from new york will soon announce a proposal to give the permanent -- give the president permanent power to borrow more. in other words, he wants to extend the debt ceiling permanently by going around congress. let me repeat that. the so-called schumer-obama plan is a plan to permanently hand the president a credit card without spending limits and without lifting a finger to address the national debt. truly outrageous, especially when you consider that our debt is now $17 trillion
't forget, it's tax deductib deductible. >> i disagree. okay. >> last word. are you disinvesting, mike? >> no, no, i'm always fully invested. i've been riding this. i've been delighted. we've had a very defensive take on the markets. as you know, i've stayed with my health care, my technology. my industrial stocks and my consumer staples. we've been looking like a hero. i hope it continues. but i don't -- i think you're much wiser when prices get this high. p/e multiples expand and profit margins are at all-time highs to hit your singles and doubles. >> buy and hold. that's my mantra. this thing is going to come to an end. they always do. i know that. >> yeah. >> but right now, it isn't the end. i'm with mr. heebner on this one. thank you. we appreciate it very much. >>> now, news, israelis take out a huge shipment of russian missiles in syria. looks like they were being sent to the terrorists at hezbollah. we're going to have the latest on that developing story and more, just ahead. it's a growing trend in business: do more with less with less energy. hp is helping ups do just that. s
, coming up. >>> imagine paying your taxes by the mile. the government charging you based on how far you drive. the new proposal. we'll tell you about it. who? not so much. my customers can shop around. but it doesn't usually work that way with health care. with unitedhealthcare, i get information on quality rated doctors, treatment options and cost estimates, so we can make better health decisions. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. #%tiaintroducing cardioviva: the first probiotic to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels without a prescription. cardioviva. >>> time now for a political gut check of the morning. the white house is reviewing all u.s. surveillance programs after reports national security agency was spying on some 35 world leaders and the top senator on the senate intelligence committee says he is totally opposed to that surveillance and that data collection will not continue. cnn's chief national correspondent john king is here to talk more about all of this. it's pretty interesting where things have gotten with this spying controversy, john. the white house is
, but with the threat of tax. yesterday we all know better. if you like your insurance, you won't necessarily get it keep it because president obama and 279 congressional democrats chose to pass a flawed law that for many strips the choice away. i yield back, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from south carolina seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. wilson: mr. speaker, the augusta chronicle lead editorial on saturday hit the nail on the head pointing out that the real truths about the obamacare train wreck. americans remember a, quote, soothing assurance from president obama in 2009 when he was hawking his affordable care act to the masses. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan. now tell that to the hundreds of thousands of americans who already have received letters from health plans essentially telling them you are on your own, end
that americans get affordable care without all these regulations, mandates, taxes and there are ways that we can do it. what we are seeing with this healthcare law and so much attention is to the web site. the web site is really just the tip of the iceberg, there are big problems coming with this, greta. >> should secretary sebelius step down or get fired. >> the president gets to make that decision. >> what do you think. >> i have called for her resignation. i think when jon stuart and "saturday night live" are making fun of the job that you are doing and the web site, what that speaks to is the fact that young americans are laughing at the secretary and the web site. these are the people that the president is trying to coerce into buying insurance that is more expensive and more insurance that they want or need and in many cases can afford. that's the only way that you pay for the insurance for these older, sicker indivi younger people buy it. >> at this point though what would be achieved by that if she were, you know, if the president said you have got to go or she decided to go. what would
. lou: why would congressman paul ryan get involved in integration an trying to rewrite the tax code in such a short timeframe and as i was talking with jon barrasso yesterday, the leadership priorities are to preserve sequester and ensure that no taxes are raised here. why expand again -- it's one of those baffling things to me that the republican party always seems to be inclined to turn potential political victories in moments of achievement into failure and i just don't understand it. >> he is focused on this budget negotiation and i don't think there'll be there will be a grand bargain. we are focused on not only keeping victories like this in place but adding to them as well and tax reform would be a victory that would help grow the economy and help alleviate the deficits. lou: but we are sitting here looking at this. >> cannot speak for him, but we are focused on trying to get a budget done and when you don't have a budget is when you have this continuous resolution. lou: goes back to what i was saying. >> earlier i said that it's okay to say no when no is what is %from people
. which means that the premium must be paid, except that it will be paid in the form of taxes; so the tax burden. >> where is that going to happen? because the house isn't going to want a tax increase. >> exactly. but here is how the plan works though. if, in fact, there is a plan that costs $3 trillion, and that plan goes to $4 trillion and you cannot find that money from premiums, then it's going to be embedded in some form of more taxes. >> senator, i apologize. i must interrupt for one second. >>> this is a fox news alert. shepard smith is in the fox news deck with breaking news. >> update coming from police on deadly shooting that happened los angeles international airport. >> something like this how we respond. ask how we respond to moments like this in the line of fire and in our recovery. it is a tremendous testament that today, a day that started with horrific attacks is now ending with los angeles international airport beginning with reopen. this morning a gunman opened fire in lax's terminal 3, killing a tsa agent. the first to die in the line of duty and shooting two other peo
